Harry Potter

Last night it was JD’s turn to get Ian ready for bed. We try to take turns because if one of us does it for too long he gets very upset if the routine changes. I was fooling around on the computer, or reading, or something when I heard JD reading a story and Ian singing random songs and generally making noise.

I went to the door to figure out what the heck was going on – Ian is usually very quiet during story time – and saw the cutest thing. The two boys were cuddled up together. JD was valiantly trying to read Ian the first chapter of Harry Potter and Ian, being a typical 3 year old, was creating a sound track to make up for the lack of pictures.

JD announced it a “spectacular fail” after he had finished tucking Ian in, but I think it was an excellent idea. He’s tried it a couple times and I know one of these times it will stick and become one of Ian’s favorite memories. Even if it doesn’t stick it will still be one of MY favorite memories.

Update: He's sticking to it! He's been doing 2 or 3 pages a night, which apparently is Ian's limit. If he keeps at it we may have a HP costume next year instead of an evil Star Wars character... who knows?

Update 2: I found this picture from the first time JD read Harry Potter to Ian. Awwwww. Ian was a little quieter the first time around. JD ran out of voice before Ian ran out of patience. Hopefully we will get back to that someday soon.
